Air raid siren to sound across town as part of Armistice Day commemorations

An air raid siren will sound on Monday as part of Wrexham’s Armistice Day commemorations.

The siren, which is located in the Wrexham Museum and can be heard within a 2.5 mile radius of the town centre, will sound at 11am.

It will mark the Armistice Day service which will be taking place on Queens Square.

Wrexham Council say: “It’s an important part of the commemoration and for many years people have come to expect it to be sounded. But we are aware that it can cause distress or upset to some people.


“We want to avoid this as much as possible so we’re hoping you will be able to spread the word about this to anyone you know who may be affected so they can be prepared.”

Members of the public are also being invited to attend the annual Remembrance Service, which will take place at the Royal Welch Fusilier Memorial on Bodhyfryd on Sunday November 10th at 10:55am.

At 10:59am a bugler will sound the “Last Post” and the two minute silence will be observed.

The public are advised that barriers will be put in place at 10:30am at the following locations to allow the parade to pass safely and to secure the surrounding area:

• Chester Street (adjacent to the former Feathers pub)
• Holt Street (by the Welch Fusilier pub)
• Chester Road (near the Chester Road/Powell Road roundabout)

Access to the Bodhyfryd Car Park adjacent to Waterworld will therefore be available only until 10.30am.

Facilities will be available for elderly or disabled persons to follow the service from inside the Memorial Hall.

There will be no charges for parking in all council owned town centre car parks, except Tŷ Pawb, from 10am.
